Can a wrong configuration of the chip harm the PS2?
Can a wrong configuration of the chip harm the PS2? –
I have a PS2 which its owner tried to intall a magic2 with the wrong configuration (the PS2 is PAL, and he left the settings as they are meaning - USA).
The PS2 now have sound problems (like white noise that taking control over the sound from time to time), although the chip+wires are completely dissmounted, and all the points are cleaned.
Is it possible that the wrong configuration harmed the PS2?
Can anyone tell me what ICs are part of the sound chipset?
any clue will help
You haven't specified which version PS2 so I'll assume v7. CXD2947 and CS4335 are at the heart of the audio circuits. The former is adjacent the Boot ROM (BIOS) so look for splashes there.
the AV outputs are close to the Colour Fix points so look for splashes etc. there.
Solder balls near the BIOS?
And NO - misconfiguration is not likely to harm the PS2.
Its a v5, and 10x a lot for the info - its still valid...
Time you bought some Messiah 2s!
I'ts not my PS2!
But I'm loaded with 3.1s so, until I'm out ...
BTW - problem solved, the owner used a fiberglass brush to clean his board inch by inch, and when it was assembelled back, it worked great.
